Sausage Crescent Rolls

This is an all-time favorite at
Mama Holli's house.

ALL THE TIME
ALL DAY
It is a tradition to serve these
Christmas morning
while we open our gifts but this recipe is not reserved
only for special occasions!

These puppies also make a wonderful
manly appetizer!
The menfolk just love to munch
on these while standing in front
of the TV watching some
kind of sporting event.
I pull them out of the freezer and zap
in the microwave for a quick kiddo breakfast.

The best thing about this recipe is that
it can be made ahead and frozen
until ready to use!
HOLD ON COWGIRLS....
Here we go!
 Easy Ingredients
1 pound of mild pork sausage
(This Texas Mama uses only Jimmy Dean)
2 cans of crescent rolls
(Pillsbury - YUM)
1 block of cream cheese, softened
(Philadelphia - Going for it - No fat free)

Sausage Crescent Rolls
Brown and drain sausage. Add cream cheese to sausage.  Spray baking sheet.  Open rolls but do not separate triangles.  You will make 2 loaves from these rolls.  Place 4 triangles together on a baking sheet.  Press out the perforated holes to seal as one piece. (Now you can buy them in sheets but either will work) Spread half of the sausage mixture on top.  Cover with the remaining 4 triangles pressed together.  With your finger press all around the edges to seal the top and bottom pieces of dough.  Repeat the procedure to make the second loaf. 

Mama Denise in Texas brushes egg whites over the tops of the loaves and  sprinkles poppy seed over the egg whites. I don't do that step but if you feel like being a little fancy then go for it!  Bake 25 minutes at 350 degrees.  Slice loaves and serve hot.  You may let them cool on a wire rack and place them single layer in a Ziploc bag and freeze.  No need to thaw just reheat on a baking sheet for 20-25 minutes at 325 degrees. 


I like to spice this up a bit and I add 
1 Tbs. green chilies 
and 1/3 cup of pepper jack cheese 
to the sausage and cream cheese! 

Either way it is delicious!
WAIT!
If you like this recipe then
